The power of collaboration

The Machine Shop is the collaborative workspace co-founded by four independent creative studios as a shared studio space, with room for a few like-minded creative folks to join us along the way. Located in downtown Colorado Springs, this former automotive garage is now home to artists, architects, developers, designers, writers and video wizards.

SO, CAN YOU FIX MY CAR?

Probably not. Our name is an homage to our studio’s history. Nicknamed “The Machine Shop” by the hard-working folks who worked here in decades past, our workspace still embodies the same roll-up-our-sleeves, straight-talking, fix-it-better mentality as our predecessors. But, with 100% more creativity and a whole lot less axle grease.

You’ll find us doing creative work for clients, sharing ideas, throwing events, eating tacos, collaborating on projects, hosting artists, and sending a signal boost to the creative greatness in our community.
